Subject: Print isn't very good, but...
I love this film non the less because it's real and funny as hell. This reminds me so much of so many people I grew up with and my own mother never had the first qualm about bending me over her knee either.
Some of the acting was great and some stank, but the real feel to it is what makes this one so special. These were real events the way they played out..still are in many peoples lives.
